Proposal presented by: Making The Impact LLC

Hi Jon!

Thank you for reaching out to us via live chat. We are so happy to hear from you!

I have updated the proposal to include only the relevant services that you seem to be interested in based on our conversation:

  • Website hosting
  • Simple website design
  • Contact form

This proposal does not include things like logo design or content writing. If you would like those services, we can add them on now or at a later time. For the website content, you can provide your own or we can pull the content from your existing website and use that.

After you review the details and cost breakdown below, if you would like to accept this proposal as-is, you can click the Accept button. Once you accept, there is an invoice ready so you can pay it online. If you have questions or need any changes, just let me know.

 

Website Hosting

To make things simple and easier for our clients, we offer website hosting. In doing so, it is easier for us to serve our clients and provide the best service we can. With our website hosting, we provide you with an administrative login to access the controls for the account, have complete file access, and more.

We will never lock you in or make you completely dependent on us. If you ever want to switch to another hosting company, say the word and we will help you transfer over to whichever platform is compatible with your website. While we offer this service, it is optional and we’ll be happy to design your website wherever you decide to host it.

 

Simple Website Design

A fresh look for your website will go along way towards modernizing your website and making it more attractive to your customers, while also helping you to stand out from the competition. To figure out the best look for your website, here are the top Oklahoma businesses with at least somewhat modern websites:

Neighborhood (https://www.neighborhoodbicycles.com)

Celestial Cycles (https://www.celestialcycles.com)

Spokelahoma (https://www.spokelahoma.com)

KGS Bikes (https://www.kgsbikes.com) – this one is actually in Texas

We found that the Phat Tire Bike Shop (https://www.phattirebikeshop.com) is using the same bike shop system as you are.

We can come up with a design for you that will be eye-catching, professional, and stand out. One of the things that would help your business stand out is the use of a video background on the homepage. We can create video backgrounds using stock footage or videos you provide. The video would loop in the background continuously. On smaller screens it can load a static image to improve the speed of the site, or if you choose, it can also display the video.

 

Website Structure

Your current website structure contains the following pages:

  • Homepage
  • Shop Bikes
  • About
    • Covid-19 Resources
    • Store (hours and location information)
  • Services
  • Contact Us

Proposed Structure:

  • Homepage
  • Our Shop
  • Services
  • About
  • Contact

Homepage
The homepage of your website could feature a large background video with a big headline, with 2 buttons leading to the “Our Shop” and “Services” pages. Below that, there could be sections that summarize what products and services people can expect from your business. It could also feature a short paragraph about your business that leads to the about page.

Our Shop
Since you don’t want to sell your products through a shop, this page could provide information about the types of products you carry in store with ways to call for more information to find out what you have in stock. The page could have photos of the interior of your shop, lists of the types of products, and other relevant information.

Services
We recommend adding some more details about the service provided. We recommend a fresh design for your pricing lists and service packages. Instead of just having a button telling people to contact you, if you wanted to, you could use a booking system that would allow people to set appointments for service and even pay online when they make the appointment. If you are interested in that, we can put together an estimate for you.

About
We recommend having an about page that features high-resolution images of your shop. Things that you can include that can really help your customers trust your business is using staff photos, some information about your business history, and any information on experience, awards, or certifications that you can highlight.

Contact
The contact page should have information about your store hours, contact information, a contact form, and the map of your store location. Currently, this information seems rather spread out, and your website does not have a contact form.

An online contact form is a simple form that enables customers to send you an email directly from your website. It prompts them to provide their name, email address, and message, then it sends you an email with their message to you. Contact forms help prevent spam and scammers. If you simply list your email address on your website, malicious actors can capture it and add you to lists to send you spam and scam emails.

Scope of Services

This proposal is for the website hosting, as well as the planning, setup, and design of all desired pages and features.

Website Hosting

We provide managed website hosting. With this service, we will setup a website hosting account on our server and connect your domain name to it. Our service includes core system updates to keep your website secure and we provide technical support to help you with any problems.

Basic Site Setup and Design for All Pages

We setup your WordPress website performing a simple installation of WordPress (if necessary), installing an existing theme, and creating all pages of the site. Page creation includes inserting content and adding images, and basic styling.

Contact Form

We will create a contact form that will prevent spam and bots using hCaptcha. Messages sent through the form will be sent by email to you as well as stored on the site.

Additional Recommendations

If you are interested in expanding on your marketing efforts and reach, these services may be a great fit for you. These services are of course, entirely optional and are not included in the scope of the proposal. If you are interested any of the recommended services below, please let us know and we will put together an estimate for you.

Business Cards

With the change in your business name, logo, and website domain, you will need new business cards. If you have not done this already, I would like to offer my design and printing services. I can get you an estimate for standard business cards, or if you would like something that stands out, I offer a variety of specialty business cards. With the popularity of QR codes, I can generate a QR code and include it in the design, so people can scan it to visit your website instantly.

Promotional Video Ads

Promotional video services can help businesses to showcase their products and services in a creative and engaging way. We will work with you to create a custom video that highlights your brand and message. We can help you to develop a concept, script, and storyboard, and then produce the video using high-quality equipment and techniques. Our services include filming, editing, animation, and post-production, as well as adding music, sound effects, and voice-over. We can also help you to optimize the video for different platforms, such as YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook and Instagram, and can even help you to create a video ad campaign. With a promotional video, you can reach a wider audience, increase brand awareness, and drive more sales and conversions.

Brochures, Flyers, or Postcards

You may want to have some information you can pass out at your events or have available for people to simply pick up as they pass by. A trifold brochure, postcard, or flyer is a great way to do that. We can design and have a variety of promotional materials printed. We would be happy to put together an estimate for you.
